…this Blog

This blog was launched in August 2010 as part of the IFLS’s effort to fulfill our mandate of “building a community of interest” amongst feminist legal scholars at Osgoode and beyond.  Our aim isn’t to provide a venue for original scholarship.

The blog aims at that mental space in which connections are made, between people and between ideas – the space where idea generation happens.

Reading this blog could help you find out about things that you’re interested in, like interesting scholars, interesting scholarship, interesting events.  Our posts are mainly suggestions about things that our members have found interesting, thought provoking, or important.  We hope that they stimulate your thinking and your research.

Our posters are Osgoode faculty members.  We also invite guest posters and if you have a book/article/event you’d like to see posted, please email slawrence@osgoode.yorku.ca with your suggestion and we will see what we can do.
